As I sit here beside her
Snuggled and being together
I am in awe of her beauty
She is so lovely
Her long slender fingers
Her elongated neck
The sprinkling of freckles on her nose
Her sun lightened streaks of strawberry blond hair
Her flowery halter dress that she wore when she was four
That she loves to wear now as a shirt.
Her carefully selected earrings
Made to match her outfit
Her long legs, now longer than all of her at age two,
With her painted toes, peeking out from under the blanket
I love her attitude and I love her spunk
I love her helpful and thoughtful nature.
I love the way she so freely dances and sings.
I love her goofy goof ball-ness
I love this little girl.
My little improved carbon copy of me
Laying so sweetly in my arms
